I wouldn't make a final decision based on any factory loads. Just my $0.02...
I mean, if it won't group a 160-168gr bullet better than 1.5" at 100 yards, I'd trash it. But if it's 1" or less groups, I'd consider tinkering with some handloads for it to see how good you can get it to shoot.
I think if you give the 7RM a chance you might learn the joys of the 7mm calibers.
Not to steer you away from the .300 WM, but if you already have 1 or more...Then why not diversify your collection? Why limit yourself to only 1 caliber, when we live in a great country that doesn't say we are limited?
Also, if you want to test some good quality factory ammo, these HSM with the 168 Berger VLD's is some good stuff from what I've been told.
